Manchester United are ready to pull out all the stops to convince David de Gea to stay.
With Real Madrid circling, Jose Mourinho is anxious his number one will be lured back to his hometown club as they search for a replacement for Keylor Navas.
The Sun claim that United are ready to launch a pre-emptive strike by offering the Spain international an impressive new deal to extend the two years he currently has left at the club.
That would see him increase his weekly wage from around the £200,00 mark to more in the region of £300,000, putting him in a similar pay bracket to Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It’s quite an extraordinary deal for a goalkeeper, but De Gea has been voted United’s Player of the Year for each of the last three seasons.
The 26-year-old nearly moved to the Bernabeu in 2015, only for a last-minute blunder with the paperwork to scupper the deal.
